good morning there phil another difficult day in toronto so twenty five year old alec the nasty end was in court still he was wearing a white forensic jumpsuit and was handcuffed now the reason he was wearing that white forensic jumpsuit is because those are put on any time and accuse clothing is taken as part of the investigation so that happened in this case by nasty and spoke his name a loudly confidently he was alert still we should also point out they did hear that there was one family member for in courts reports going around are that it was his father now that man was weeping. during the as the charges were read out to twenty five year old alec nasty and still we can tell you that zach you'll be back in court later in name police have a closer to establishing a motive. no not at this point still there are still going over all the details but to give you
a sense of perhaps the mind frame that the accused twenty five year old alex in that scene was in during this is during that confrontation with policemen s.c.n. had what appeared to be a gun possibly a cellphone that's now all part of the investigation and he was essentially police on telling them to shoot him to kill him we are hearing from some of former high school colleagues. sorry i'm just going to turn this on. c.n.n. may have had. issues while he was in high school phil to interrupt so thank you. thank you so much. for france's presence of manual macrumors on the second day of his u.s. visit to where he's been meeting his u.s. counterpart donald trump the talks in washington a tough topics on the agenda including the iran nuclear deal right out of some the war in syria the meeting at the white house started off with pomp and ceremony as
mr trump pulled out of the stalls emanuel mccraw it seems the u.s. president's closest contact. with trump was a few syfy these praise for what he called america's oldest ally france and hailed what he said was a wonderful of friendship with mr mccraw. mr president they're all saying what a great relationship we have and they're actually correct it's not fake news finally it's not fake news so it's a great honor to be here but we do have a very special relationship in fact i get that this has been for. little peace we have to make them perfectly is perfect so it is really it is really great to be with you and your special friends thank you thank you thank you. thank you. thank you very much mr president i want to think president friends and your country your people for this very well might come this wonderful ceremony.
this goes to what washington we're joined on the hob and a welcome alexander so those two men seem to be asking very very well what's the explanation for this apparent chemistry between them. well yes indeed what we saw today this small gesture as the president smiling at each other shaking hands holding their hands for a couple of seconds during the world come ceremony here at the white house. itself all that shows that the leaders were able to establish a good report and it is to you to president calls personally persistent efforts attempts to courts president he's taken a much softer line towards president than european leaders he stressed that those men have something in common they both were member of the political system
he argued that it is crucial and fundamental for europe to have a very good relationship with the united states despite all differences and he's apparently been successful because those men really seems to have a good personal connection however it is also risky for the french president if he gives too much to president and gets little in return. about the iran nuclear deal one of the topics that are likely to be on the discussion what can we expect. all we can expect that the french president will have a few fixes for perch on the iran deal to deliver to president. so that he thinks it is a win and we are hearing that the european and american negotiators have made progress
on side agreements that would lay out snoozed for iran to meet or to face sanctions again however what to be so today in the oval office during the meeting between president and president my point is that the president once again double down on iran saying that it is a terrible deal that it was ridiculous in saying to agree to this deal because it didn't deal with iran in places like syria or year because it didn't deal with iran's missile program but he said that he is ready to talk about the president and on trade what is president trump likely to do about exemptions to his new trade tariffs the deadline is the first of may. well we don't know whether he is going to get if the europeans. exemptions
and the extension of this terrorist a permanent exemptions that's of course what's the europeans want this is a very important issue for president also for the german chancellor who is due to visit in the white house on friday. in washington thank you. now is take a look at some of the other stories that are making news around the world dozens of people have been injured in their homes damaged following an earthquake in southeastern turkey at least thirty five people suffered injuries in the quake the five point one magnitude event struck the province of the young man was also felt in neighboring provinces. dramatic pictures of been released of migrants being rescued in the mediterranean sea italian coast guard say sixty three people drowned after a boat capsized on monday the u.n. says around eight thousand two hundred people have arrived via sea crossing to italy as yes or five. hundred firefighters are fighting more than fifty
